Best Export We Can't Get Anywhere Else


It's not the same in the bottle. You want it to be. Especially when you're not in Maine and you're craving it and wanting it to taste the way it does at home. But it's not the same. It's not the same as sitting in some quiet bar on a Sunday afternoon, Bull Feeney's maybe, that's a good spot, sitting with a pal or two, putting the weekend behind you, fending off the week ahead, and ordering up a couple pints. Because it's gotta be from the tap. And, better, it's gotta be from a tap in Portland, where Shipyard has the fewest miles to travel. They offer a bunch of great beers ? Old Thumper, Brown Ale, the seasonal stuff like Pumpkinhead. But it's the Export we're talking about. Always the Export.

Who knows what it is about it? How buttery it is. How smooth. A rich, full taste that doesn't try to overdo it, that doesn't try to showboat — no look at how amazingly hoppy we are, note how different we taste from other beers. None of that. No bells or whistles. Just a simple, delicious, glowing golden beer.
